cholesterol first appeared on the world scene in the second half of the XVIII century.Resulting from gallstones as a result of chemical experiments, a substance similar to wax, had already undergone scientific scrutiny.Later compound was obtained in a pure form, and is classified as a natural fatty alcohol.
Today we know that the average person needs 1,000 mg of cholesterol per day.Moreover, the majority (80%) is produced in the liver, and the rest comes from food fraction.
Almost everyone in today's society has heard about the "horrors" of high cholesterol in
molecular studies connections made it possible to distinguish three categories:
thus circulate in the blood for at least three groups of compounds, each of which varies the degree of hypothetical harm health.
«good" cholesterol (HDL)
Less than 35 mg / dL is considered low.In the case of good cholesterol the higher the score, the better.
«bad" cholesterol (LDL)
holesterinofobii Proponents claim that high levels of cholesterol in the blood should be blamed for the development of atherosclerosis and, as a consequence of premature death from cardiovascular disease.
At first glance, everything is logical.Slightly soluble "bad" cholesterol tends to settle on the inner surface of blood vessels, forming the so-called atherosclerotic plaque.A ultraplohoy cholesterol does its dirty work even faster, increasing the risk of coronary heart disease.
is not surprising that with such a characteristic ganged up on cholesterol and doctors, and nutritionists.If it were not for one thing ...
According to the majority of studies conducted in many countries, data on the direct relationship between the level of cholesterol in the blood and death of at least debatable.
experimentally proved that 90% of all cardiovascular disease occurs in people older than 60 years, in addition, almost all the work suggests that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for women.
today the increasing popularity won the theory according to which the formation of atherosclerotic plaques contributes to damage to the vessels themselves.This condition may cause a number of factors, including inflammatory diseases, bad habits, pathologies of endocrine system.
addition "thickening" cholesterol does not happen by itself or under the influence of improper diet alone.To transform mineral lipoproteins can lead to harmful, for example, frequent stressful situations.
In pursuit of "zero" indices of blood cholesterol, some advocates of a healthy lifestyle comes to the absurd: completely deprive yourself of fats and animal products, to panic at the sight of a piece of butteroil or pork chop.Not only that, put on a vegetarian diet of their children, depriving growing body of vital substances.And what eventually turned around like anti-cholesterol war?
achieve a reasonable balance of good and bad cholesterol in the blood in several ways.
So still our friend or foe Cholesterol?Perhaps the answer depends on the person.From the way he manages his own health: it eats, how it implements tempered nature of physical abilities.
itself cholesterol - it is difficult, but very necessary for the full life of the substance.It does not need to be afraid, but it is reasonable to control the level, of course, necessary.
